Saint Joan of Arc Novena
Feast Day: May 30
Recite the following for 9 consecutive days
Eternal Father, you gave us Saint Joan of Arc through your infinite love and mercy for us. We humbly ask that you send down your Holy Spirit upon us, as Your Spirit is the intermediary by which the Word goes forth from Your lips and reaches the ears of the faithful. Allow me to be a witness to Your Son, Jesus Christ, just as Saint Joan of Arc was. Oh, Jesus, grant me the courage to do Your will, that I may be in one accord with our Father in Heaven. I thank You for the gift of Your love, which I hope to one day fully understand.
Say 19 Our Fathers, followed by “Saint Joan of Arc, by your powerful intercession, hear and answer me.”
When you finish saying the Our Fathers, say the following prayer
Saint Joan of Arc, patron of France, my patron saint, I ask you now to fight this battle with me by prayer, just as you led your troops to victory in battle. You, who were filled with the Holy Spirit and chosen by God, help me this day with the favor I ask (state your intention here).
Grant me by your divine and powerful intercession, the courage and strength I need to endure this constant fight. Oh Saint Joan, help me to be victorious in the tasks God presents to me. I thank you and ask you for your continuing protection of God’s people.
Sweet Saint Joan, plead for me before the throne of almighty God that I may be deemed worthy to be granted the request I have asked. Help me, Saint Joan, to be more like you in the attempt to love the Lord with all my heart, soul, and mind. Through your guidance and prayer help me to be a truly devout and loving Christian, that I may both know and see the will of God. Help me now Saint Joan, in my time of need. I ask that you may always be near me guiding me closer each day to Jesus. Thank you Saint Joan for having heard my prayer. Amen.
